What's for Dinner?

Today is going to be a busy day and tonight will be even busier, so I made dinner this morning after breakfast. We're having Taco Soup...except it's probably more of a taco chili. Anyways, here's the recipe.

Taco Soup

4 cups of beef broth
1 can of tomato paste
1 can of tomato sauce
1 jar of salsa (I usually use about a pint)
1 bag of frozen corn (or you can use a can of corn)
1 can of black beans
1 can of chili beans (I use the medium spicy ones)
1 can of fire roasted tomatoes
1 can of green chilies
1 t. basil
1 t. oregano
1 package of taco seasoning
1 lb of lean ground beef
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped

1. While hamburger is browning, I add the rest of the ingredients to the crock pot. I also salt and pepper the hamburger while its cooking and I'll usually add garlic powder and chili powder to the beef as well. When the hamburger is brown, I add it to the pot.
2. Cook on low for 6 or so hours.
3. Serve with tortilla chips, shredded cheese and sour cream.

**This recipe also makes ALOT of soup, so we freeze a couple of containers to eat later. It is definitely tasty. We like it spicy, but you can adjust your seasoning to your taste. Enjoy and let me know what you think!
